During our first week back to school after the summer holidays we had a very special visitor to the school. Rita Quirke who is related to one of our pupils, called with her two olympic medals which she won for Kayaking at the Special Olympics in Los Angeles 2015.
Rita visited a number of classrooms and spoke to the children about all the training and committment required to be a successful athlete. She also showed her medals to everyone.
Rita is an inspirational person and she made a huge impession on all the children and staff. We would like to thank her for taking the time to visit us.
